Organization History

NCYP was established to provide opportunities for young professionals in the Lake Erie Shores & Islands region.

Originally formed as a part of the Erie County Chamber of Commerce in order to give young professionals a chance to network, the demand to join the group expanded beyond Erie County thus prompting the creation of NCYP.

North Coast Young Professionals can be found in all walks of life.  Members include government officials, financial advisors, construction managers, bankers, marketing executives, accountants, small and large business owners, media executives, real estate agents and more. With the focus of our group being networking, developing personal and leadership skills, education, and volunteerism; NCYP can provide opportunities for young professionals to grow in and with our community.
